Public Access Facilities
Fairfield Lake has experienced another late-summer fish kill and TPWD has suspended stocking at this lake until further notice. Fish kills have been documented on this power-plant lake since 2003. They occur in August and September when hot weather and shorter days lead to a shortage of oxygen in the water. For updates, visit the Facebook page for TPWD's Tyler field office.
Two boat ramps are available in Fairfield Lake State Park, which also offers a fishing pier, fishing bank, cleaning stations, restrooms, and campsites for tents and RVs. Duck hunting is not allowed on the reservoir. For details, choose a point on the map or a name in the chart below.
